A little more scenery.
|Hills all around|
|More of the dry river bed|
|Thought it was Purple Lupin, but not.|
|Sunset Saturday Night|
|A little better shot of the sunset|
|Turkey vultures turning in for the night|
|Maybe you can see them better|
|Sunday Morning and the Marine Layer is back|
|The quail family out of the dampness.|
So here is my take on Pinnacles National Park. Good place to go if you like to hike. Good place to go if you like cave exploring (and are able to hike that far), not a good place to go if you want to do some fishing.
If there had been a sufficient amount of water this past Winter, the wild flowers would have been spectacular. If there had been a sufficient amount of water this past Winter, Chalone Creek would have been full of water and that would have been a sight to see. All in all, it's worth the visit.
Katherine and I will do this again, but I think it will have to be after a wet Winter. It's a 200 mile drive from the house to the park. Not bad in terms of a weekend trip.
So that is trip number one this Summer. The next stop is Pine Flat Lake down by Fresno, California and a little fishing with Daniel Roloff on the Kings River.
Don't wait until then to come back, I've got a whole month of fishing ahead.
Till next time.
